In a mouse model of glaucomatous retinal damage by intravitreal NMDA injection, PACAP-38 prevented NMDA-induced cell death in the ganglion cell layer, including retinal ganglion cells and [Iba1.sup.+] cells, presumably through a mechanism dependent on IL-10 release by retinal microglia/macrophages [136].
PACAP-38 was shown to inhibit NADPH oxidase activity and ROS production in microglial cells.
